    When ready to cook pork, heat gas or charcoal grill. When grill is heated, remove pork from marinade; reserve marinade. Place pork on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally and brushing with marinade, until pork is no longer pink in center. Discard any remaining marinade.

  • Serve these pork chops topped with pineapple slices.
